How Transitional Care in Chino Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready-Set-Go Home with Transitional Care
For elderly adults, being admitted to the hospital is often the start of a long chain of health concerns and returns to the hospital. This cycle is not only stressful and exhausting. It can also reduce seniors' independence and quality of life. Transitional care from Visiting Angels® Chino is available for seniors who are in the hospital to help them through the process of being discharged and recovering at home. When seniors have compassionate support from our care professionals, they can reduce their risk of rehospitalization.
What Causes Readmissions in Chino?
Almost one in five Medicare beneficiaries will return to the hospital within a month of being discharged. While it's not possible to pinpoint a single cause of the high rates of hospital readmissions among seniors, it's clear there is a pattern of factors that can raise an individual's risk of rehospitalization.
This pattern of factors often includes a lack of energy or motivation after hospitalization that prevents seniors from being able to look after their own health. When combined with social isolation or inadequate support from family, these factors can lead to complications and a resulting rehospitalization.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps
Our Ready-Set-Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels Chino helps seniors sidestep these common factors and get on their way to a smooth recovery. We begin our care process at the hospital to support seniors and their family members with the process of discharge planning. Our Ready-Set-Go Home discharge planning guide includes plenty of information and helpful resources as family members speak with the senior's physicians about what they should expect during recovery. In addition, we coordinate with families to design a plan of care that gives them peace of mind and provides their loved one with comprehensive support at home.
Once the discharge is complete, the senior can rely on one of our caregivers to assist them with their daily routines and the implementation of their doctors' orders. Caregivers can remind seniors to take medications, prepare healthy meals, provide transportation to appointments, and offer emotional support that promotes a positive outlook throughout the senior's recovery.
Rehospitalizations are not inevitable for elderly adults. Transitional care from Visiting Angels Chino is available to help promote seniors' well-being and enable them to regain their independence after a hospital stay.
